Today’s question is about DJI’s Zenmuse Z30. Should you use DJI’s Zenmuse Z30 for infrastructure inspections? Are there any disadvantages to using a small sensor?
Our caller is unsure about using the Zenmuse Z30 since it is only a 2 MP sensor. Can he get good results by using a small sensor? In order to answer his question, we first discuss sensor size and construction. What is the reason for using a small sensor on a drone? Is it possible to use a bigger sensor on a drone? Would you need a larger drone if you decide to opt for a bigger sensor?
We also discuss the most suitable drone systems for infrastructure inspections. Is the Phantom 4 Pro good enough for infrastructure inspections? Or, should you rather opt for the M210? We also talk about variable zoom. Will variable zoom create difficulties for you while processing flight data? Tune in to this fun and informative episode. Thanks to Jon from Australia for the question. Fly safe!
